The legendary Rolex 24 Hour race takes place at Daytona International Speedway this weekend with Win Autosport making their debut in the famous race.
Facing a baptism of fire, the team which was formed in the weeks leading up to the Roar Before The 24 enter the LMP2 class with team owner/driver Steve Thomas, Tristan Nunez, Matt Bell and Thomas Merrill. The team will roll off 17th overall for the Rolex 24 Hour in the No.11 ORECA LMP2 07.
The team fared extremely well in the Roar Before the 24 finishing the race in the Motul Pole Award 100 where Thomas finished an impressive fourth in class.
In challenging conditions, Thomas held his own leading the opening stages of the race which gives him and the team plenty of confident going into this weekend’s signature event of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship season and gives the team something to build on.
For the race, Steve Thomas says that the team’s number one goal is finish the race:
Our number one goal is to finish the race. As a team that’s what we want to do, we want to make sure that everyone is doing their job to the best of their ability, and that we make it to the finish line at the end of the 24 hours. It is definitely a lot of hard work for the team but for me, I’m having so much fun that it doesn’t seem like work and I can’t wait to get in the car the next time.
